Pastor Michael Todd is the spitting image of a man who knows when he’s done wrong — which is why Montell Jordan‘s ready to forgive and forget his gnarly salivary moment.
We got the singer-turned-church leader at LAX and asked if Pastor Todd’s viral spit sesh from a couple of weeks back will hurt his ministry in the long run … and Montell tells us it won’t, with some solid rationale.
For starters, he says Todd’s made good with his congregation — not to mention the public at large — by owning up to what he did, and acknowledging it wasn’t cool. The fact Pastor Todd did this so quickly with a sincere apology goes a long way for MJ, and he thinks Todd’s parishioners will register it that way too.
Big picture … Montell says Todd’s humility flies in the face of what he says so many other people do these days … namely, doubling down on bad takes/behavior.
The mere act of fessing up to his mistake shows goodwill that Montell says he appreciates. Furthermore, he also (rightly) points out … the vast majority of the outrage from the face-wipe seen ’round the world was mostly spreading via social media … and by extension, a bunch of randos who don’t even know, follow or attend Todd’s services on the regular.
With all that said … Montell thinks Todd will be just fine. Although, he does put any future body secretion healing methods on the never-again list … ditto for face touching. 😅
